Yesterday my son’s 5th grade class had lunch at Benihana’s. They won this privilege after donating the most pounds of pasta to Second Helpings. I asked Nicholas about his experience. He told me how much he loved seeing the cool tricks performed by the chef.
Upon entering the restaurant, he noticed an advertisement for a beverage, a Lemon Mojito to be exact. Used to seeing Trader Joe’s (non-alcoholic) Sparkling Mojito in our fridge, he simply thought it was a lemon version of this same drink.
When it was Nicholas’ turn to order his beverage, “I’ll have a Lemon Mojito, please” he said. Amused I asked what he teacher thought about his premature request. She said “Well, I don’t think your quite old enough for that drink,” as she explained to him that it contained alcohol!
At least he said “please!”
